Before the race began everyone took a few moments to remember Steve Truglia, fellow Winter Series paddler and member of Barking Canoe Club, who died in a tragic accident last week in China in the course of his work as a professional movie stunt-man. Read the Times obituary and support the fund for his repatriation from China.
The race attracted 97 competitors and passed off without a hitch. The special Bob Porter trophies for the fastest u14 Girl and Boy were presented to Jack Skippings (CLM) and Emilia Boylan (BSF).
The full results of the day's race can be seen on the WS results page, where series results to date can also be found.
The next race will be at Cambridge on Sunday 11th December - see CAM race details.
